Singaporean Chef Mohamed Al-Matin started Le Matin Patisserie just before the pandemic hit. Before Le Matin, Chef Mohamed trained at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney and worked alongside established patisseries like Adriano Zumbo Patisserie (Adriano Zumbo) and Black Star Pastry (Christopher Thé). He is also an ex-pastry sous chef at the famed three-Michelin-starred Noma restaurant in Copenhagen.
You can try Le Matin’s fine-dining-inspired pastries at 77 Robinson Road or at Porcelain Cafe located at 290 Orchard Road Paragon. Until recently, Le Matin Patisserie at 10 Raeburn Park accepted walk-in customers to sample their offerings right in their kitchen.
Le Matin offers pastries in a box to those who want to sample 5 different pastries (Grand Matin Box). There’s also the much-awaited addition of the Kouign Amann Box (featuring 6 different signature pastries at $45) and the Le Matin Magnifique (a combination of sweet and savoury pastries at $53.50).
With pastries handcrafted by someone as talented as Chef Mohamed Al-Matin, you can be sure you are eating only the best sweets there are in Singapore.

Sinpopo Brand Restaurant is a well-known restaurant-café in Katong that serves a heritage menu with a twist.
Perhaps their bestseller is the Gula Melaka Cake ($38 for 6”, $62 for 8”), an original creation by Sinpopo.
Pandan Kaya Cake ($48 for 6”, $72 for 8”). This gluten-free cake is produced from glutinous rice flour and is a cross between a pandan chiffon cake and kaya toast.
The cake is coloured with a gorgeous natural blue from Blue Pea flowers, which are commonly used in Peranakan cuisine, and is inspired by the layered dessert kueh salat.
The delectable slow-cooked, slow-stirred pandan kaya spread and fresh coconut cream are sandwiched between the cake layers.

Nuage, pronounced “nu-age,” is a French word that means “cloud” and represents the founders’ philosophy of being unrestricted in their bakes and pastries.
Unlike its name, Nuage’s interior is more grounded, featuring wooden elements and decked with earthy tones. The place is rectangular and can accommodate 6 dine-in tables.
Their menu is familiar and homely, with classics like croissants, bagels and cakes. Some must-try’s are Pain Au Chocolate ($4.50), Ham & Cheese Croissant ($6.90), Kouign Amann ($5.50), Bacon Onion Cheese Focaccia ($8.90), Pistachio Strawberry ($9.20), Blueberry Cheesecake ($8.50) and Elmo/Cookie Monster Cupcake ($6.50).
You can have their sweets and pastries with a Nespresso cup of Espresso ($3), Long Black ($3.20), Latte ($3.90) and Mocha ($4.50). Or if you are in the mood for non-caffeinated drinks, check out their signature Iced Matcha ($6), Iced Yuzu Matcha Latte ($6.50), Iced French Chocolate ($6) and Cold Brew Tea ($6) instead.

Looking for a quiet, secluded cafe to spend some time alone with your favourite book and a cup of coffee? The Twisted Trio is a modest cafe that blends in perfectly. The patisserie sells exquisite, freshly baked pastries.
There are many choices here. You’ll be met with a buffet of baked delicacies from the moment you step in, including Zebra Butter Cake ($3.50), fudgy Dark & Milk Choc Brownies ($4), various biscuits, and one-of-a-kind cakes like the Blue Pea Passionfruit ($5.50) and Lychee Rose ($5.50).
The interior of the cake store is organically designed with warm, earthy colours, and the smattering of plants gives the modest cafe some personality. Expect to hear the whirring and humming of baking machinery in the background while you eat your pastries, as the kitchen takes almost half the floor space.
Location: 1 Everton Park, #01-43, Singapore 081001

Like The Twisted Trio, this place has a small homey interior.
All of the baked goods in The Better Half are produced entirely from scratch. Even if you request toast, the bread is prepared in-house rather than purchased from a vendor.
Try their Rose Raspberry Cake ($8), which is a rose sponge cake with raspberry cream cheese. The cake is fluffy and not at all dry. There’s also the Spiced Pumpkin ($7) which is bursting with pumpkin flavour.
For a refresher, check out their Iced Coffee Chai ($7.50) or the Iced Genmaicha Latte ($7.50).

KKI Sweets in its new home at Seah Street offers the same quality of their artistic inventions.
When it comes to KKI Sweets’ menu, its “J” ($13.50) has to be the perennial social media darling thanks to its devious disguise as a potted plant. The lifelike mimicry is the best expression of their keen attention to detail, with texture as lifelike as the ingredients physically allowed.
Some best-sellers are the “FROMAGE” ($13.50), Marronnier ($9.50), Arata ($10.50), Teh ($9.50), and Carrot, Orange & Ginger ($24).
